DOX: Quebec church owes other Scientology orgs heaps, pays its workers peanuts - 2018-06-14
You may have seen a story hit the wires yesterday out of Canada. It reported that some documents obtained by CBC showed that a worker at Scientology's Quebec org had been paid only $70 for 39 hours of work.
We had a couple of reactions to that story — first, although that might seem like low pay to the uninitiated, most former Scientologists we know would be lucky to get that much money in an entire month of work, let alone a short week of only 39 hours.
But in Canada, it was apparently pretty shocking that Scientology was paying less than $2 an hour, and was trying to get away with it by saying that its workers were not employees but "religious workers" who were exempt from the law.
